ACRYLITE® Soundstop

Highway safety improvement is a continuing goal of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). This is leading to specific requirements for enhanced traffic safety devices. ACRYLITE® Soundstop is a durable, UV stable, performance acrylic which effectively mitigates noise. ACRYLITE® Soundstop also provides wind protection to help meet various requirements set by the FHWA. Warrantied for 30 years, ACRYLITE® panels are sound-reflecting, impact-resistant, and highly transparent. Product options include transparent colors, translucent or opaque panels, bird-safe stripes, and embedded poly-amide filaments for fragment retention (used with structure mounted noise barriers).
